Gibbs and others run a protective detail for the Chief of Naval Operations at a speaking engagement at a hotel in Washington, DC; during that, in an adjoining alley, McGee shoots to death a man who later becomes known as an undercover detective of the Metro PD. Two Metro cops strongly agitate the director of the NCIS. Abby takes part in her first autopsy, then she handcuffs McGee to a chair. McGee finds a good lead, and he goes to the Metro PD for questioning. Tony and Ziva seek again, and they find; Gibbs and McGee also seek again, and they too find. McGee's suspect flees abroad, but the gang put the pieces together, and Gibbs and McGee confront one bad guy, thereby clearing McGee. Written by
Did You Know?
Director Shepard, upon being told by Agent Gibbs he doesn't realize she was still here late, sarcastically tells Agent Gibbs that she is a doppelgänger. This is the second time Gibbs has been told that word, with the first time in Season 2, Episode 12, titled "Doppelgänger". He remarks to Director Shepard he does not know what it means. See more
In the final scene between Abby and McGee, the wide shot of McGee clearly shows his camera marker painted on the floor, and McGee then glances down at it to confirm his position. See more
